and said the scandal is important to america too. >> rupert murdoch does own an enormous amount of your media and some of your newspapers. and i think people need to ask themselves, you know, who is this man who owns such a large part of our media. i think, you know, when you hear some of the new allegations about who the "news of the world" was phone hacking that may include and i stretch it's allegations at this stage, some of the 9/11 victims, well, i don't know, that may strike a chord with americans. >> and this morning more fallout from the scandal with word that news international's legal manager has left the company. >>> parents who want healthier food options for their children are getting some help today. at least 19 major restaurant chains are announcing they're putting more fruits and vegetables on the children's menu along with whole grains and low fat dairy items. restaurants also say they will do more to promote healthier food options. >>> america has a new medal of honor recipient. sergeant first class leroy petree received the nation's highest military honor on tuesday
one question. and what is the influence of the media? you think what's happened with murdoch with england right now. if you're indebted to the media and giving them billions of dollars, is there some kind of comment you can make about that? and what states, are there any model states that have the best public financing, what are the levels, fields that you could look at as a model? >> host: thanks, caller. >> guest: i'll start with the last first. one of the models i think is the most interesting is new york city, it's not a state but it is a very good model. it has -- i think it's something like a five or six-to-one match for small donor contributions. it's been a fairly robust system. it's had a fair amount of participation. now, all that being noted, you know, you have a mayor in new york that spent i think it was something like, i don't know, $60 million of his own money or whatever. but at least you have a competitive system. and so i think that system as a model is one that i would point to. as for the somewhat interesting relationship between politicians and the media,
